|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Charter School Advisory Commission|
|In the near future, Senator Vulakovich and I will introduce legislation to establish a Charter School Advisory Commission to review and make recommendations concerning charter and cyber charter school funding.
This commission will consist of members of all four caucuses, including the majority and minority chairs of the Appropriations and Education Committees, two members appointed by the House and Senate majority leaders and one member appointed by the House and Senate minority leaders and the Secretary of Education.
The commission shall be charged with examining all current laws, regulations and executive policy statements which determine funding for charter and cyber charter schools in the Commonwealth.
The commission shall issue a report with its findings and recommendations, no later than eighteen months from the effective date of the legislation. The Charter School Advisory Commission will operate in a similar manner to the Special Education and Basic Education Funding Commissions and the Public School Construction and Reconstruction (PLANCON) Advisory Committee.
I hope that you will join us as a co-sponsor of this important legislation.
Introduced as SB806
